Research and development is inherently more difficult to predict than serial production.  One is all about managing a process that repeats with no changes, the other is something that has never been done before and doesn’t repeat. While developers, engineers and marketers are good at understanding the steps to realize the dream, predicting a launch amidst uncertainty in a complex development is challenging.  Let’s talk about some modern methods for progressive elaboration, risk evaluation, and the statistics of done.
